St Louis Campground, Saint Louis, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

What a gem of a campground. This campground celebrates its 125 anniversary next year! This is a Church of God campground that was opened to the public about 25 years ago. The church uses this campground for two weeks in August. Pretty sure low usage after that. There are two sections to this campground. The area north of the office is 30 amp FHUs with lots of shade. The area south of the office is 50 amp, water only and no shade. This was just a one night stay for us. We didn't need a water connection, but needed 50 amp and good satellite reception. We needed satellite to monitor our property in the path of hurricane Irma. We had the area south of the office all to ourselves. These are back-in sites, but when low usage they can be used as pull troughs. Campground is about 1.5 miles east of St. Louis and is very quiet. Not much to do here, but very good for an overnighter. The person that checked us in was very friendly and helpful. If you have a dog with you, you need to provide their shot records when registering. The campground is well maintained, grass mowed and very neat. There appears to be a few seasonals in the 30 amp area. But all RV were in good condition and no trash in the area. Verizon Cell was good and Verizon data was 4.31 Mbps download, 1.50 Mbps upload and 42 ms ping. Good enough to upload pictures here. There is a 'Camp Store' but was closed when we were here. The bath house and restrooms are undergoing an extensive renovation and were closed. Not a problem since we rarely use the campground restrooms. Hard to beat $12 a night for a place to park. We will return here when in the area again. We camped at St Louis Campground in a Motorhome.

Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping, Mackinaw City, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is massive. Road layout is confusing to say the least. Our site was level, some shrubs between sites, mostly dirt and some gravel. Sites and roads were very dusty. The fire ring was located at the extreme rear of site. For the price, all sites need maintenance and more grass. We don't like parking in dirt. Not all roads are paved. Non paved roads are very dusty but overall in good condition. Water pressure was ok at 38 psi. Verizon cell worked, but no LTE. Only weak 3G. There are waterfront sites here, very narrow (25 ft) and not very deep. Your RV will back up to RVs directly behind you. Large motorhomes will have a very tight fit. Water front sites are only 30 amp service. They are pricey - $64 and up per night. This is a family campground. There are playgrounds, a pool, game room, bike rentals etc. The park store seem well stocked. They offer hot coffee, soft drinks, limited groceries, wine and beer. They also sell pizza. There are two areas in the campground to catch the free shuttle that takes you to the ferry going to Mackinac Island. The free shuttle leave at 8:30, 9:30 and 10:30 AM. The shuttle has a trailer for your bikes. There is not a laundromat in the campground. You need to go to Mackinaw City to do laundry. All trash containers are located need the entrance to the campground. That can be a very long walk to take out the garbage. When arriving there are two lanes to park in. You need to know your vehicle license number before you walk to the office to register. If the sites were better maintained and the campground had paved roads I would have rated this campground higher. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A trip to Mackinac Island is a must. Round trip ferry prices to the island start at $24. You can take your bike to the island for a $10 charge. You can rent bikes on the island for $6 per hour. A trip to the Soo Lock in Sault Ste Marie is also good. There are boat tours that will take you through the locks.

Antigo Lake RV Park, Antigo, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This might not be a destination campground but it's great for a few days down time when traveling. This is a hidden gem when it comes to city run campgrounds. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. You can make reservations on line. This campground is managed well. We had reservations and to be honest I was worried about getting the site we reserved. The city had our site well marked as reserved. So no problem getting our site. Thirteen RV pads are asphalt and 7 RV sites are gravel without any hookup. Grass is mowed, the campground is clean and well maintained. There are not any 'seasonal' RVs here. The road through the campground is paved. Restrooms are controlled access with a code provided when making reservations. Verizon cell and data are good. WiFi is free and one of the best we have encountered. Campground WiFi speeds: Ping 23 ms, download 12.63 Mbps and upload 14.05 Mbps. Electrical is good and stable. Only 30 amp and 20 amp are available, but good voltage levels at 123v with no load and 117v with a 25 amp load. One block south of the campground are two small lakes. There is a picnic pavilion and playground across the street next to lake. There are walking trails all around the lakes. You can also walk to 'downtown'. Bikes can also be rented here. No large trees so satellite reception is great. There are 13 FHU sites, 7 tent sites with electric, 7 RV dry camping sites and a overflow area. Spacing between sites is close. Site 12 has the most privacy and the largest grass area. It is located next to the Bath house/restrooms. No a problem with noise. Fire wood is provided with a voluntary donation for it. There is a dump station with a fee of $10. Overall a great little campground and only $20 per night. If our travels bring us back to this area, we will be back to this campground. We camped at Antigo Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

There is a Super Walmart about 2 miles from this campground and a Menard's west of Walmart. Saturdays there is a Farmer's Market from 8AM to Noon and a flea market at the county fairgrounds.

Dakotah Meadows RV Park, Prior Lake, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

VERY NICE campground! The park uses city water and water pressure is good. I measured 62 PSI at our site. Power was good and stable. 121v on both legs of 50 amp service. This is an adult destination campground. Dakotah Meadows RV Park is located adjacent to Mystic Lake Hotel and Casino. That being said the campground is family friendly. The campground is very clean and well maintained. Nice deep back-in sites. Pull troughs are located very close to each other. Pull through sites share the same utility hook ups. Hook ups are located between each RV. The right side of your RV faces the right side of your neighbor sharing the pull through. If you want privacy then you should consider a back-in site. Interior roads are in great condition and easy to navigate. Signage of where to park when registering is lacking. When you pull into the park you will see a building with 'Headquarters' on it directly in front of you. That is the campground office. Pull into the parking lot in front of Headquarters then pull in behind the RVs parked in the center and then park parallel to the gas pumps. The RVs parked in the center of the parking lot are paying $15 a day for storage. The park has free WiFi. I tried using using it without success. The WiFi was very erratic and unstable. There is a RV-Car Wash that is large enough for large RVs. The back portion was broken the week we were here and you could not wash your RV. IF the RV-Car Wash was working I would have rated this a 9. RV washing at your site is prohibited. The campground offers a playground, picnic pavilion and a storm shelter. The shelter remains locked until a sever weather advisory. There is no dog walk. There are trees here that can interfere with satellite reception. Our site (B4) has a tree that blocks reception of satellites 110 and 119 from Dish Network. We camped at Dakotah Meadows RV Park in a Motorhome.

Veblen City Park, Veblen, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a small city campground. There are 8 sites. Sites are small, not level, ground is soft. The sites are not big enough for two RVs. An RV with slides takes up two sites. Power was good. Both legs of the 50 amp service read 120v. Under load the voltage dropped to 116v. This campground is adjacent to the city softball field. There is a picnic shelter with one restroom. Very dirty. We did not use it. There is an additional restroom, but that has had the door removed and is boarded up. Water pressure was good, just over 42 psi. Water did have a slight green tint to it. Verizon cell and data are very very good. Data: 28.44 Mbps download and 20.64 Mbps upload speeds. There is no security here or that matter any police in this small town. One night during our stay a group of adults arrive in the picnic shelter area directly adjacent to the campground around 1AM. They were loud and drinking beer till sometime after 2AM. They did leave quietly. The morning after, there were large amount of bird feathers where they had been drinking. What's with that? With that all said we never felt uncomfortable about the lack of security. We were here on family business. This campground is in Veblen SD and was the only campground I could find that had FHUs for miles around. After being here a few days I did discover Britton SD, located about 30 miles, from Veblen does have a small RV campground. It is limited to 30 amp and not large enough for larger motor homes. Rates here are reasonable. $20 per night, $125 a week, and $300 a month. I'm not sure this campground is open during the winter. We probably will not stay here again. We camped at Veblen City Park in a Motorhome.

River View RV Park, Fort Pierre, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

When arriving here drive up to the top of the hill and continue until pavement ends. About 200 feet after pavement ends is the entrance to River View RV Park, will be on the right. Overall a good place to stay. One of the few campgrounds in the area with FHUs. Some sites have very good views of Pierre and the Missouri river. Site 18 has the best view. There are a total of 22 sites here. All sites are pull-thru. That is until there are over 11 RVs in the campground. Then each site becomes two sites. One RV must pull very far forward and another RV is backed in directly behind it. There is no grass between sites and sites are very close together. We parked our car within two feet of our RV door with the door open. All sites have young shade trees between them. Power connections are different. Because of fire regulations there are not any fire rings. There is one communal fire ring located adjacent to the existing campground. Owner was expecting a near full campground while we were here. Our power and water (60 psi) connections were actually in the next site next to us. We parked forward enough that we needed a total of 30 feet of sewer line. Campground has free WiFi with very low transfer rates. 0.37 Mbps download and 0.02 Mbps Upload speeds. We used our Verizon data with great speeds of 23.11 Mbps download and 18.53 Mbps Upload. Now for the good news. The owners are nearing the completion of 40 additional sites located just below the current campground. All sites will be pull-thru and 40 feet by 18 feet. Each site will be grave and an artificial turf. The new Office/group area/bath house (pay showers)/storm shelter is nearing completion as is the final land fill of the new site area. The will also be ten tent sites and a large picnic pavilion. The owners are also planning some 100 amp sites for the newer all electric motorhomes. Once the new section is completed all existing sites will cease to used as double sites. Rates will remain the same: $30 per night or $500 per month including utilities. Completion could be later this year or early next year. These newer sites should have much better views than the existing sites. We camped at River View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Badlands Grocery, Interior, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

First all we did not stay here. We found this campground when mailing post cards at the Post Office. It's directly across the street from the Post Office and the Interior Grocery store. It is a little rougher than the only other campground in Interior. It does offer 50 amp sites with FHUs. The other campground does not offer sewer if you need 50 amp service. So if you need 50 amp service and FHUs this is the campground to use in Interior. If we had found this campground first we would have stayed here. This is a no frills campground. No pool, no picnic table, no fire ring, no restrooms, no showers and no playground for kids. The Interior Grocery store owns this campground. There are no discounts offered. We camped at Badlands Grocery in a Motorhome.

Badlands Interior Motel & Campground, Interior, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Good place to stay when visiting the Badlands NP. You have great views of the southern entrance to the Badlands. Water pressure was around 42 psi during our stay. We did have electrical issues with our 50 amp service. Checked voltage when setting up, had 116v on leg one and 117v on leg two of our 50 amp service. About the time the campground was getting full for the night we started have low voltage (103v) problems on leg one. Our PMS system shutdown power a couple of times in just a few minutes. We turned off all the ACs and power stabilized around 108v. When I got up the next morning I checked out the power box. The outlet had failed and burnt our 50 amp plug. I contacted the campground and someone came right over and looked at the outlet. The outlet from the outside appeared normal, but on close inspection it looked like someone had driven off without disconnecting their power cord. Leg one had been damaged internally. The connection was ok for a voltage check, but when loaded with our ACs it fried our power plug. Maintenance replaced the outlet and I replaced the plug on our power cable. Fortunately the park a few miles from here had a plug. Sure beat driving about 160 miles round trip into Rapid City. The folks work here very helpful. The maintenance man loaned me a hacksaw to cut my plug off and came back after I had everything hooked back up to check voltages. Late in the afternoon power was still low hovering around 108v on leg one and 114v on leg two. Low but acceptable. We did have a few power failures during a rain storm. Check power outlets closely before hooking up. Check voltages after hooking up with a load applied. As from previous reviews, electrical power seems to be an issue here. Pool was closed. Sign at pool stated high chemical content, but the pool was completely empty of water during our visit. The bath house was clean but very dated. It has the appearance of a ho-hum DIY project done years ago. Plywood stalls and doors etc. We camped at Badlands Interior Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Great place to stay over night. Easy access from I-90. Check in is self service, but while I was registering the owner arrived to help me. The owner was pleasant and helpful. This campground is on city water and water pressure was above 40 psi. When you arrive drive to the pool area (pool was closed) to register, not the log cabin house at the entrance. There are four rows of sites. All the sites in the first row on the left have FHUs. The other rows, only the first four sites have FHUs. All sites are 20, 30, 50 amp. Sewer connection is located near the entrance to the site. If you pull to the front of the site you will need a VERY long sewer hose. I have 40 feet of sewer hose and had to back up some for the hose to reach the sewer connection. The same applies for the water connection. Gravel roads within campground are in good shape. The grass was mowed. There is even some cool 'yard art' in the campground. See photos. All sites point in the general direction of the western arc satellites. Dish satellite reception was good. Verizon Cell and data were very good. Verizon data - 12.27 Mbps download and 14.50 Mbps upload. When talking to the owner she informed me a Dollar General Store just started construction last week along with a paved road to it. It's located right next to the campground and within a few hundred feet of the campground. There is free WiFi but we did not use it. We camped at Hill's RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Dam Complex COE, Iowa City, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

First my only complaint. Signage here is really lacking. It is very confusing on getting to your site and how to register. You need to find the West Overlook Entrance Station to register. But don't go there first. First you must find you site then go to the station. I did not see ANY signs explaining that procedure, except at the West Overlook Entrance Station. Going there first, with a large RV could be a mistake. Look for a map of this campground that you can print on www.recreation.gov. Where to register is mentioned on that map. But in VERY small print. The COE really needs better distribute this information. BTW, if you are using the America the Beautiful pass you need to bring that with you when you register. Otherwise you will be charged the full price for a campsite. No pass - no discount! We camped in the Tailwater West loop. Bring a water pressure regulator. The water pressure varied between 100 psi to 125 psi on the input side of my water pressure regulator. Sites in this loop are well maintained, concrete pads and grass mowed. The bath house in this loop was clean, but not up to the cleanliness of other COE campgrounds we have visited. Both Verizon cell and data were adequate, 5.09Mbps download and 2.51 Mbps upload. There are nice walking trails in the area. We camped at Dam Complex COE in a Motorhome.

Nice small park. Located adjacent to I-74 and surrounded by corn fields on the other three sides. There is road noise when sitting outside, but inside your RV with the AC on it's not a problem. There is a 30 amp section and a 50 amp section. Road leading to campground is a county road, well maintained but a little narrow. Buildings are well maintained and grass mowed. There are seasonal workers here, but all RVs in good condition and clean. No junk piling up anywhere. This campground is closed from October to April. Great for an overnight stop.

Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes (now both TT and KOA), Batesville, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in the Thousand Trails part of this campground. Grounds seemed nicely maintained as well as the campground buildings. We did not use the pool. The pull throughs in Phase 2 - area P (where we stayed) are in need of maintenance. Our site was mostly grass growing with some gravel and dirt areas. Water lines look to have a temporary fix using washing machine hoses. Good water pressure (60 lbs). Our site was fairly level. Grass had been mowed recently. Sign at entrance telling TT members to go to the main gate to check in. There are two check in areas. Both located in the Campground store. One for TT and one for KOA.

At the main gate there is an intercom you need to use if no one is there. A little difficult to understand. Had to use the intercom and was told to go back to the store/gas station to register. Registration personal were helpful and friendly. We were able to get 50 amp service with FHUs. A nice plus for me is the campground allows washing your RV and vehicle. But you must purchase a $5 'washing permit'. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes (now both TT and KOA) in a Motorhome.

Overall good park. Office helpful. Clean and well maintained. Only complaint with Site 1 was not level at all. One of the worst sites we've had for not being level. To get or motorhome level, one rear tire was jacked into the air. This is an Escapes Park. No other discounts are available. Not much nearby. Close to I75 and good for overnight stays. No Cable or WiFi. Verizon cell service good. Verizon Data: download speed 11.03 Mbps and 2.68 Mbps upload speeds. We would stay here again. We camped at Raccoon Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pelican Roost RV Park (Military FamCamp), Mayport, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice military FamCamp. Just a general observation, the Navy seems to have some of the best FamCamps. They are always well maintained and in good locations. Pelican Roost is a good example of this. Pelican Roost is located where the St Johns river empties into the Atlantic Ocean near Jacksonville Florida.

The office personal are very helpful and friendly. The cement patio is on the small side. Just large enough for the aluminum picnic table. Our site was level and had partial shade from palm trees. The down side from having palm trees close was it blocked one of our satellites. Most sites should not have a problem with satellite reception. Shade is a premium here. Water pressure at our site was 38 psi. Sites have green grass that is kept mowed.

Roads are paved and easy to navigate. No large trees or low tree limbs to deal with. The beach is about ½ miles from the RV Park. The beach is not crowded and you can walk for miles on the beach. There are 19 RV sites that directly overlook the St Johns River. The remaining 28 sites are in two rows behind the 19 riverfront sites. All sites face the river. The riverfront sites cost $21 per day and the remaining sites are $19 per day.

Laundry is free and so is the WiFi. The WiFi is offered through GoWiFi. We had some of the best Verizon 4G reception ever here. We did not use the free WiFi here. The community center has free coffee in the morning and free ice all day. It also has a large indoor area with tables and chairs, greet for meetings.

Use the Main Gate located on Mayport Rd. The Gate is covered and is high enough and wide enough for any RV. Use the right lane for both entering and leaving the base. There are not any barriers to navigate when entering or leaving the base. We camped at Pelican Roost RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
